How would you change Directory Property value when installation re-ran from ARP MODIFY option?

I would like to re-set the Directory property so that any subsequent MODIFY or repair will remember the new value. Currently I set with Session.Property("MyDirproperty") = szTheValue but It doesn't seem to store that value in Cache or Source MSI. It seems like it only changes the value temp in memory.

Thanks.

As far as saving property values goes, perhaps see this DevLetter tip: http://www.installshield.com/news/newsletter/0305-articles/MsiPropUninst.asp.

I guess writing those property values to registry and retrieve them on each maintenance run would be the only solution.

Thanks!
